3D Systems has introduced VisiJet M3 Black, a plastic injection molding-like material for use in its ProJet 3500/3510 professional 3D printers. It is said to be the printers’ strongest, most durable material yet, with excellent toughness and flex properties that make it suitable for snap-fit and assembly applications. Its jet-black color also mimics injection-molded plastic performance so engineers and designers can prototype, test and use parts that look and feel like the final product, the company says.
